There are companies that will do small runs of CD-Rs, as well as
the higher-quantity glass-master-based real CDs.
Blue Tree use www.bis.ie for small CD-R runs. They will also
print the CD-R labels for you. One trick is to design a nice
full-colour label and get a load of blank CD-Rs printed with it.
But leave a small white (or empty) part on the label which you can
over-print with plain black text to describe the contents (or
hand-write for very small runs). This single-colour over printing
is much cheaper.
We also use www.nugenmedia.com for large quantities of blank CD-Rs
with our own custom label.
Hope this helps.
